      For future knowlage; the sedans whole bodies are higher & shorter than the coupes/hard tops.

        Bruce, as long as you are sure that your 2 Door is a Sedan, Body Type "F" and not a Coupe Body Type "C" the answers you got ARE correct.

        The Body Type, Trim Level and the Sequential Body Line Number are on the Body Tag on the Right side of the Firewall, Engine Side.

          Rich, nice picture that car I owned when picture was taken and at my shop. I don't remember when or who took the picture but it was mine.

            Well it IS at C & B Studebaker! Most of my Pics come from here or an eBay Ad, "Someone" was probably selling it.

              No interchange. The sedan hoods are shorter and the nose is more vertical in angle. Thus, the hood emblems do no interchange either! Somewhere there is a factory photo of a sedan and a C/K parked one behind the other and its totally obvious the differences in the body dimensions.

                Not everyone knows the proper names for the Studebaker bodies
                Many times I've seen a C body called a 2 door sedan.
                We don't know what Lark63 has until he gets back with us.
